KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kalgoorlie

  • Families visiting Kalgoorlie with kids will need to abide by Australian car seat laws while on the road. You’ll need to either bring an infant car seat for babies under six months old or add one to your Kalgoorlie hire car booking. From six months up to seven years, kids must be secured in a booster or car seat appropriate for their age or size. After the age of seven, it’s still recommended for children to use a booster until they’re taller than 145 cm. If you’ll be flying into Kalgoorlie-Boulder Airport (KGI) and would rather not add car seats to your luggage, most hire car agencies offer a range of bookable car seats. Just note that these come at an extra cost, so if you’re looking for cheap car hire in Kalgoorlie, you’ll need to factor the car seat fee into your budget.
  • When travelling around Western Australia, relying solely on your mobile phone’s maps may not be the best idea. In Kalgoorlie and other rural parts of the state, mobile reception can be spotty and unpredictable, and if you don’t have a backup, you may find yourself stranded without directions. To avoid this, it's recommended to add a GPS to your Kalgoorlie car hire booking. These systems rely on satellite signals and provide reliable navigation, even in areas with limited mobile coverage. While you may never need to use it, having a GPS in your hire car will ensure you stay on track during your Western Australia road trip.
  • Whether you’re looking for a luxury vehicle or cheap car hire in Kalgoorlie, you’ll need to be at least 21 years old to be eligible. Drivers under the age of 25 should note that some hire agencies impose an additional fee on young drivers. This surcharge is generally added to the daily rate, so it can make a significant impact on the overall price. To ensure you get a good deal, compare the different Kalgoorlie car hire companies through KAYAK, looking at their base prices as well as any surcharges they apply.
  • Kalgoorlie (also known as Kalgoorlie-Boulder) is a small mining city and was the central hub of the Australian gold rush, but it is quite remote. Car hire in Kalgoorlie is a good idea so that you can easily get to attractions like the Super Pit, a working gold mine, on one side of the city and Kalgoorlie Golf Course on the other side. You can also travel further to Lake Ballard, about a 2h drive from Kalgoorlie, and other attractions in the area.
  • Kalgoorlie Airport (KGI) is a small airport. Car hire in Kalgoorlie can be done through Avis, Budget and Europcar from within the terminal building. Hertz and Thrifty operate shuttles from the terminal to the hire depot alongside the airport. Search through KAYAK ahead of time to book and find the best deal. If you arrive to the city centre of Kalgoorlie by train, there is also an Avis branch in town.
  • Kalgoorlie is in the state of Western Australia, and so, the state’s road rules apply. Many of the common rules of the road are in place, such as not using your mobile phone while driving and not driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit is 0.05%. You need to give way to public buses, U-turns aren’t allowed at traffic lights unless a sign indicates otherwise, and, in Australia, you drive on the left-hand side of the road.
  • The city is relatively easy to navigate, so you shouldn’t have any problems with car hire in Kalgoorlie itself. If you venture further afield into the countryside, be sure to check you have enough petrol, some drinking water, food supplies and spare tyres. You don’t want to break down in the outback without any of these. It’s also a good idea to let your accommodation know where you are heading, just in case. Watch out for kangaroos jumping across the road, especially around dawn/dusk and after dark.
  • Book your car hire in Kalgoorlie at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car in Kalgoorlie

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Kalgoorlie?

    For Kalgoorlie car hire, any type of car will do if you stay in the city area. If you want to explore more remote areas, an SUV or a 4WD might be the better option. As Kalgoorlie is a mining centre, it is well connected with three highways leading from it: the Great Eastern Highway to the west, the Esperance Highway to the south, and the Goldfields Highway to the north.

    The maximum speed limit in Australia is 110 km/h. In metropolitan areas, it is usually 60 km/h; in suburban areas, it is 50 km/h; and in school areas, it is 40 km/h. Look out for signs to guide you as they override any general rules or conditions. Police use radar devices to monitor vehicles and issue fines for speeding.

    You can park in any designated parking areas, but make sure you read the parking sign carefully. Some parking has time limits and fees; be sure to display the ticket in the window of your vehicle. Always park with the flow of traffic, as vehicles are not allowed to park facing oncoming traffic.

Your licence must be in English or accompanied by an International Driver's Permit (IDP) printed in English. Furthermore, you will need to provide your passport as identification when hiring a car in Kalgoorlie.

  • What restricted roads are there around Kalgoorlie?

    Many car hire companies have policies in place that prohibit the use of their vehicles on unpaved roads or certain types of terrain. So, it's always best to double-check with your hire provider before embarking on an adventure to spots like Fitzgerald River National Park, via dirt tracks like John Forrest Rd.

Car hire insurance in Kalgoorlie

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Kalgoorlie car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Kalgoorlie.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Kalgoorlie car hire.
